Hi there
I’ve just started doing City and Guilds Business Admin level 3, distance learning.
I’m looking for anyone doing or having done the same course who would like a study buddy, just to chat about assignments etc
Thank you in advance 😊

Is yours the Level 3 Diploma for the Business Administrator? If so, I'm doing the same one, although it's as part of an apprenticeship - not distance learning how are you finding it? What units are you doing?

Hi Sophie
Yes that’s the one. So far so good, I’ve just completed my first assignment on professional behaviours, I think it was BA3task 1. I am not liking using one file at the moment, just getting to grips with it. Spent ages trying to re-attach the assignment to submit it. Hopefully it’s gone through now. I’m still doing an induction assessment and just about to start BA3task2.
How are you getting on? How far in are you?

Ah, we don’t use OneFile, so can’t comment on that! I’m six months in, but I’m hoping to be done or almost done in another six months. Overall, I’m enjoying it, although not as much as my Level 2. My workload has massively increased since I started the L3 and it’s quite a juggle. I’m yet to sign off on a unit, although a few are almost there. I’ve got my test for 301 soon and will do 308 after that, so that’ll help get rid of a couple more units. Think the presentation aspect will be the hardest bit to be honest! I’ve just done my 303 and 304 statements and it’s nice to have got them done too. I’ve had to work at home which I really didn’t want to do, but needs must - it just wasn’t getting done at work!

How are you finding it? I am almost done (yay!) and was gearing up for my End Point Assessment before coronavirus closed everything down.. just need to finish 306 Project Management and then it's a case of waiting for things to settle and work resume, so my folder can be verified. Then onto End Point Assessment hopefully

Hi. I’m at around 80% for NVQ Level 3 Business Administration. I have just moved from Tesselo to BUD platform. I’m finding it much more user friendly, though I think maybe these are specific to my cohort as I don’t recognise any modules being call 300 or 308.

How have people found the EPA? Does the work ramp up towards the end? I suppose the format has changed a lot since lockdown.

Yeah, mine's not an NVQ - mine's the City & Guilds L3 Diploma (3473) that I'm doing as part of an apprenticeship, so the units will have different names, but i'd guess the content is pretty similar.

I'd say I was a good 90% done, but finding this last bit so frustrating. Not a lot is happening in terms of EPA due to Covid (obviously) and my assessor seems super busy, so getting feedback etc can take a while, especially as it's all remote and they work part time. I can't say I've seen a big difference in the requirements for work, as the majority of my EPA (for me, with City & Guilds, anyway) consists of what I've gathered over my apprenticeship. I have had to do a project report & presentation on the improvement I've made as part of the EPA, but I think that's it really. I've also got to sit an online test but I did an almost-identical test earlier on in my apprenticeship so won't have to revise loads for that hopefully. Then it's just a case of finalising things, making sure the evidence I've selected is truly my best work, making sure it's all signed etc. Hoping to be done by September - original target end date was April :rolleyes: Can't wait to finish!

Would be good to hear from someone who's actually done the EPA.

Hi,
I am doing my level 3 C&G business administration and I am struggling little on unit 301.5 understanding project management, parts 3 and 4, resources and successful project, can anyone offer any advice?
I am new to admin after leaving working in 6th form education for 15 years, so i am an older student too, so have had little experience so any advice on this qualification would be appreciated.

TIA

Hi, I am currently on a L3 BA apprenticeship, looking for a study buddy if you're interested. I'm having trouble working out my Project ATM so you're definitely not alone with struggling. For managing my performance I set up review meetings with my manager to monitor my performance. At each meeting we discussed my performance, what I could do better and what I was struggling with etc. and wrote action plans stemming from those reviews. Then I would work on what we had discussed and get feedback on whether I had improved or not. It shows that you are proactive and serious about managing your performance, and you're not waiting for your boss to complain, you're looking for feedback and improving your work continually. I hope that helps.
